“72% of organisations have accelerated their automation initiatives even further in the last 6 months.” [PwC, 2020]
Britain’s new relationship with Brussels, coupled with the pandemic’s ongoing disruption, put supply chain networks under scrutiny. It revealed their weaknesses and flaws. And has forced UK exporters to act. With 87% of organisations planning to increase their investment in supply chain resilience and automation over the next two years [Gartner, 2021], organisations must fortify their supply chains against the disruptions of tomorrow.
